SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Next week, Allegiant Air will begin service out of Savannah. Airport officials say there will be no permanent Allegiant employees will be based in Savannah and that airport workers will man the ticket counter. The company reports they are already seeing strong ticket sales.

"It seems to be accepted real nice. I think that we have a lot of potential in the future with Allegiant," said Patrick Graham with the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport. "We'd like to get more service from them so we want it to work out that we have another low cost carrier out here so the community can use them."

Allegiant Air will start with two flights a week to and from Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Allegiant officially arrives in Savannah on November 18.
